Write Winning Grant Proposals - Register
Dan L. Duncan Building (CPB), Floor 8, Rooms 1-8

This course is based on NIH grant application guidelines. It will focus on helping you write for reviewers and “sell” your proposal; develop ideas and organize your presentations using a linear progression of logic to guide reviewers through your application; and write for two different reviewer audiences—those who have read the entire application before the review meeting and those who have not—and develop advocacy for funding in both groups.
